Sun and fun in California
That's where I should be

I miss L.A.
God, I miss L.A.
All the boys and girls are runnin'
Down the boulevards of fame
Brazen ghosts beg for a dollar
Cuppa dreams to end their pain
Outside the Chinese theater
Elvis mimes and Miley clone
Hookers line the House of Pancake
Got their agents on the phone

I miss L.A.
God, I miss L.A.

Cock roaches and the crows are circlin'
Roadkill sleepin' on your star
Death hands you preview tickets
From the window of his big black car
Palms swinging in the Santa Ana
Buildings quakin' in a Big One soon
Tinsel town is a tired illusion
End of days in a dirty room

Girls and cars in California
That's the place for me
Sun and fun in California
Where I'd rather be
